District News. GUNBOWER. THE IRRIGATION PROBLEM. THE STRAIGHT' CUT SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 31 July 1914
District News. (I'rom our Correspondents.) GUNBOWKR. THIS IRRIGATION PKOBIJSH. Tint STRAIGHT' CUT SCHCMR. Despite the lioltliiijjr of public meetings, and the exertions of a special committee, the proposal to develop a badly-needed irrigation scheme to water a large and fertile portion of the Gunbower Island is in great danger of going by the board. The last meeting, held about a week ago, and presided over by Mr. Roland, could arrive at no mutually satisfactory agree ment, and dissolved itself indef initely. Deep regret is felt at this impot ent conclusion by the more enter prising and progressive local farmers, who think it a reflection on the .energy and constructive capacity of the district that no practical solution can be found. Here are 3,000 acres of fertile Island land, 670 acres of which are already successfully planted with lucerne, all of which is being red uced to a desert for want of timely waterings. And all the time there is a super-abundance of water near at hand, w...

KERANG. LOW SWAMP SUPPLY. WARANGA WATER WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 31 July 1914
KKKANO. LOW SWAMP SUPPLY. \VARAN*I;A WATKR WANTKD. In view of the present season's prospects, a large number of far mers interested in the Kow Swamp water supply met at the local town hall last Friilav and discussed the advisability of installing a number of pumps on the Murray River for supply purposes, as was done in l'JO.2. Speakers pointed out that pumped water would cost 20s per acre by the time it was delivered on the holdings. After a lengthy discussion, in the course of which the filling of Kow Swamp from Watauga was strongly advocated, the following resolutions were adopted :- . Tluit tile low condition of the Kow Swamp storage In* brought under the uatice of the State Rivers ami Witter Supply Commission, and it lie asked tliut in the et-ent of tile swamp not being fillet! from the Murray River, n supple mentary supply of witter for that purpose be sent down Picauiiiny Creek from \V;\r;ni^u Jlitsin.

The Koondrook Mountebanks. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 31 July 1914
The Koondrook Moimte- j banks. The Koondrook Mountebank-; were very unfortunate in the date' of their first Cohuna concert. The rains of Wednesday made the roads sticky and impassable for Thursday eveuing, and the result was a very thin house. It woukl have been better, all things considered, if the affair could have been postponed; but it was thought a little unfair to disappoint those who inignt have travelled to be present,'and so the company braved the mud, and the darkness and the distance and kept their promise. The pro gramme was, in its way, distinctly clever and popular, and could hardly fail to take under ordinary circumstances. The choruses-were good, the voices showing evi dences of careful training. The audience laughed heartily at the topical songs, and at the ingenious rhymes and local "hits," wonder ing how the performers contrived to know so much of the "inner side" of Cohuna. Mr. Victor Kelly, who officiated as stage .man ager, was a host in himself, whilst Mrs Kel...

A meeting was held at Keraii£ last I'riday of 40 residents of Barr Creek, representing landowners re siding- along -15 miles of that stream, regarding the pollution of the creek by salt water from the Mead drainage area. The meeting expressed dissatisfaction v.-ith the Water Commission's reply to the landowners' representations, after the assurance given hy Mr. Watt, when Premier, that nothing would he done to injure one district and benefit another. A motion was carried unanimously declaring that the landowners strongly and em phatically protested the action of the Water Supply Commission in draining the salt water from the Mead closer settlement area into Barr Creek, thereby polluting ami injuring the water, to the detri ment of all persons using the creek for domestic purposes, and uremic that the commission dis continue the objectionable drain age. It was further agreed that, failing such relief, an injunction of the Sup...

WEE WEE RUP. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 31 July 1914
WICK wnii RUP. Great satisfaction is felt locally at tlie rain of Wednesday night. Most of the farmers in this neigh borhood had been irrigating so as to give fodder a chance to start when the weather became warmer. All immediate anxiety is now at an end. The I.eitchville school is shortly to be demolished. Already timber and bricks for the new building are stacked in the school-ground. The doings of our footballers are causing ureal interest locally. Next Saturday's match against Horder is regarded as all-important. Iliitl will lie in the fray again, but K.ervin's injured knee mny still need a rest. Daye Smith played last Saturday, and showed splendid form. The Wilson's were also in tlie colors last Saturday, and hidd en tly very nearly out of them, as both of them almost had their guernseys torn off. Wee Wee Itup will need to improve 011. their goal shootiug form, which 011 Saturday last was wofully untidy. Woods' Groat l'eppermlnt Cure, 1'or Coughs mid CoKla never fails, Is 6d
WEE WEE RUP v. GUNBOWER. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 31 July 1914
WEE WEE RUP v. GUN BOWER. This match, which also came off at Wee Wee Riip last Saturday, was won by the locals after a hard fonght battle. The Wee Wee Riip team went into the fray minus Hird and I'. Kirvcn, two of their strongest men, but they had very fair substitutes in the brothers Wilson, who had just previously returned from Klmore. Gtinhmver, who were captained by Thompson, had to leave J. Hancock ami K. Toll behind, but they too secured good substitutes. l'lay opened briskly, and despite the , generally better form of Wee Wee Rup, the results of the first half of the match were in favor of the visitors, who were 3 points ahead, though Wee Wee Rup had kicked no fewer than 10 behilids. These behinds tell their own tale, l'or some reason the locals couldn't kick straight, try as they would. Three more behinds came to them in the first part of the third quar ter, making altogether 13 points to their credit, when Wee Wee Rup begau to more effectually score. Goals now came-marc fre...
A PROTEST. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 31 July 1914
A PROTEST. The secretaries of the Cohuna ctlib (Messrs. Stewart anil Crau well) have received a protest from the .'Border Club in reference to Saturday's match, the Borderers seeking to claim the game 011 the ground that Don Sutherland had played in another association dur ing the present season. This, how ever, is denied. Sutherland did play, the secretaries find, in a match outside the Cohuna-Guu bower Association, but they declare it was merely a scratch match, and that, it is averred, was perfectly legitimate. The matter is viewed with more seriousness by others, who fear the result, whatever be the facts, if the issue is submitted to,partisan delegates.
